Palazzo del Borgo

The light interior of this beautiful 14th century palatial townhouse assure relax in Italy’s green heartland.

Palazzo del Borgo is an impressively large property. Set over four floors and with walls downstairs that date from the 14th century, it has been cleverly restored and offers a light and spacious retreat for eight guests.

The 380sqm of elegantly proportioned rooms make for a calm space that is just as well suited to entertaining as to relaxing. Plenty of original features, including stone arches, stone stairs and stone fireplaces, as well as high wooden-beamed ceilings.

The views over the surrounding countryside are magnificent and the balcony, garden and small pool add to the palazzo’s grandeur and charm. 

Entering from the main door that opens onto the main square of the small village, a beautiful living room with fireplace is found. On the ground floor there is also the kitchen, the dining room and a bedroom, plus some service areas. Taking the stairs down, there is another common area with large glass door that opens onto the alley in the back of the restaurant. This door is cleverly covered with a blinding curtain. Taking another round of stone made stairs the outdoor area is found, where there is a lovely garden and the pool. There is also an entrance from outside directly to the garden. 

On the last floor, above the ground floor a large private area is found with bedrooms, bathrooms and cosy sitting area.

Many of Umbria’s delightful hilltop towns can be reached in under 40 minutes and the National Gallery in Perugia and the incredible church at Assisi are top of the to-do list.

The palazzo sleeps eight in four bedrooms. The front door to the three-storey property is on the middle floor where there is one double/twin bedroom with a separate guest toilet. The two principal bedrooms are on the upper floor, with a bathroom each, and the final bedroom and bathroom are on the lower floor. The bedrooms are all spacious and individually decorated but share the same Scandi aesthetic with white walls, exposed light stone and painted wood, high ceilings and original art.


Like the bedrooms, the bathrooms are all different. On the top floor there is an en-suite shower room and a separate bathroom that has a bath as well as a shower. The lower floor has a shower room. High-performance fixtures and fittings are common to them all.


Accessed through a wide doorway from the dining room, the light and bright, high-ceilinged kitchen is well equipped with a gas hob and electric oven and all the gadgets and utensils you might need. The sink is cleverly placed in the window recess and looks out over the garden. Dining room Situated to the right of the entrance hall on the middle floor, the vast dining room contains one of three open fireplaces. A high ceiling of whitewashed beams makes the room feel light and bright while colourful artwork, original furniture and beautiful lighting add depth. The wooden dining table runs down the middle of the room and seats at least eight in comfort. The kitchen and hallway are accessed through wide, open doorways either side of the dining room and there is a staircase down to the lower floor. There is a balcony on the middle floor where guests can also dine.

Living room

Palazzo del Borgo is an exceptionally large property. The big entrance hall has a fireplace, as does the impressive living room on the upper floor. Both rooms are fabulous entertaining spaces as well as rooms to relax in. The oldest part of the building that dates back to the 14th century is on the lower floor. Here there is further communal space with niches and arches, old stone walls and ancient wooden ceiling beams.

This, in turn, leads through to the balcony on the south side of the house, which is directly above the pool and terraced garden, all of which are bathed in sunshine for most of the day. The pool measures 8,82 sqm (4.20m x 2.10m) but perfectly formed, with stunning views of the rolling countryside stretching beyond.
